    Jet blast

    Week of september 22nd


    As we get to the end of September, there’s a lot to be aware of so, please read on.

    Progress Report Grades:  They were posted on Friday.  Please check the AERIES Portal to see how your child is doing.  Any student at risk of earning a D or F for this grading period, should have a grade.  This gives the student approximately three weeks to remedy that grade.  There is tutoring in the Student Center after school, and a student can request tutoring help during JETS period.  Please encourage your student to seek help if they need it.


    Attendance:  We know that attendance is closely linked to student performance.  It is recommended that your child miss absolutely no more than ten days in a school year to be successful in school.  A student out 14 days or more, must present a doctor’s note for each absence after 13, for it to be excused.  Additionally, parents/guardians only have ten days to excuse an absence.  Please make sure you are contacting the Attendance Office at Encinal to report your student’s absence within that 10 days, and ideally, please report absences daily.  We thank you in advance for this.


    29th Annual City-Wide College Fair:  Tomorrow night (Tuesday) is the 29th Annual College Fair.  This Fair is sponsored by the College of Alameda, Encinal, Alameda and St. Joseph/Notre Dame high schools.  It takes place from 6:00pm and 8:00pm at the College.  There were be over 80 colleges represented at this event, along with workshops on paying for college, college requirements, etc.  It’s a great night to do a little “college shopping.”  We hope you all will attend!!  And a special thanks to all the hard work our college advisors, Chris Nye and Lee Kaplan, have put into this.


    Speaking of College, this week we have College Presentations in the College & Career Center from the University of San Diego (Tuesday), University of Oregon (Wednesday) and Clarkson University in Georgia (Thursday).  Interested students should get passes from Chris and Lee before JETS period for the colleges they wish to learn about.


    Looking Ahead:  Next week is Homecoming.  Homecoming is an exciting time for the high school students at Encinal, as classes compete against each other to be named the most spirited.  There will be lunch time activities, dress days, wall night, the football game, homecoming court, and the homecoming dance.  More specifics will be noted next week.


    Early Dismissal for Junior Jets:  The Junior Jets will be dismissed from school on Friday, October 4th at 12:20pm.


    SSC:  The School Site Council will have its first meeting, next Wednesday, October 2nd, at 6:00pm in the Student Center.  All are welcome to attend.
